  • 23. Experiment: Recordings Multi-Tracking Studer J37 Multi-track RecorderGoing from 4 tracks mixed down to transferred down to one track(bouncing down) was the ability to keep background noise to a minimum. Abbey Road engineerswhere the best at eliminating this noise.Four tracks also allowed musicians to try quadraphonic sound or 360-degree sound surround like Pink Floyds Dark side of the moon. The commercial applicationwasnt quite there, yet!This however meant that processing (like compression and equalization) would have to be applied during recording, as the tracks could not be separated oncerecorded. Still had to create the music linearly unlike todays digital tools for music producers.
